Cecilia: Romantic Circle Blouse

This lovely and flowery blouse was inspired by traditional lace knitting, not unlike lace doilies knit from the center out with complicated lace motifs. The increases in the circle consist of yarnovers that simultaneously shape the intricate pattern structure. This is a project for the most experienced knitters.

Sizes: S/M (L/XL)
Skeins: 3 (3)
Length: 23.5 (25 3/4) in. / 59.5 (65.5) cm.

Note: The circle blouse is knit with the same stitch count for both sizes; only the needle size, and, therefore, the gauge is different. This blouse is worked from the top down.
